Um, just shut up and go Tommy

Outgoing Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tommy Thompson, said before heading for the door, “For the life of me, I cannot understand why the terrorists have not attacked our food supply because it is so easy to do.” Bush covered for him a bit, while holding the door, motioning out, and handing Thompson his coat and hat.

If this trend catches on, I expect the next football game I watch to have the coach telling reporters at halftime, “I can’t believe they’re not throwing against our right corner… he’s got a bum knee!”

Hopefully this knocks Thompson out of any consideration whatsoever, now or in the future, to be National Security Advisor. I can hear the press conference now:

“Mr. Thompson, how are we prepared for any domestic terrorist threat?”

“Well, except for the fact that the security guard at the Fermi II nuclear power plant takes a nap between noon and 2 every day and always leaves the door unlocked, those things they tell you detect plastic explosives at the airport aren’t really hooked up to anything, and you can buy enriched plutonium from a guy at 24512 Beechwood Court in Tampa, Florida, I’d say we’re pretty well secure.”
